Dan + Shay took home their second Grammy award on Sunday night (Jan. 26) and made their win all about their leading ladies.
The duo (Dan Smyers and Shay Mooney) won best country duo/group performance for their hit “Speechless,” a love song that was inspired by their wives. So of course, they were the first people Dan + Shay thanked upon taking the stage.
“Thank you to my wife, Abby, who’s in the crowd down there, for inspiring every song that we write, for inspiring everything we do in our lives,” Smyers said, adding, “Shay’s wife Hannah, who’s at home in Nashville, we love you.”
Mooney echoed the sweet sentiment, shouting out Hannah, who is pregnant with the couple’s second baby. He also managed to slip in a quick (and hilarious) thank you to Joseph Jonas, with whom Dan + Shay shared a round of golf in Scottsdale, Arizona, the week before the Grammys.
“Speechless” was up against Brooks & Dunn‘s “Brand New Man” with Luke Combs, Brothers Osborne‘s “I Don’t Remember Me (Before You),” Little Big Town‘s “The Daughters” and Maren Morris‘ “Common” with Brandi Carlile. It marked the second Grammy win for Dan + Shay, but their first on the television broadcast, as their crossover smash “Tequila” won best country duo/group performance during the 2019 Grammys Premiere Ceremony.
